Get Involved!

Photo: student group outdoors sitting at tableThere are many ways you can make healthy choices to get involved at SDSU.

Here are a few of the ways you can get involved through Health Promotion:

SDSU Peer Health Educators (PHEs) actively promote health and wellness on campus. PHEs gain training and education about health issues relevant to the SDSU population and effective methods to communicate health information to their peers.

 

FratMANers is a Peer Health Education program specifically for SDSU fraternity men. Its goal is to increase awareness about rape, potential rape situations and sexually coercive behavior while decreasing the acceptance of rape myths.  FratMANers members are advocates on campus, educating their brothers and peers about violence against women and how they can be a part of the solution. 

Health Promotion offers a variety of internships for SDSU Students. We have positions for undergraduate and graduate level students interested in Health Promotion and Education as well as graduate level Social Work internships.
